This station served the nearby town of Sharon, Connecticut. Despite its name, Sharon Station is not actually located in Sharon, Connecticut but is located over the state border and catered to the residents of Sharon. It was a much closer commute to Sharon Station than to the Danbury station to the south.
Depending on the source, Sharon Station served both passengers and freight from either 1873, or 1875 until March 22, 1972 and freight only until March 27, 1980 when Conrail abandoned service on that segment of the line. The station building was damaged by a fire in 1997, but was bought by a local family and restored. Sharon Station still exists today and has been converted into a residence, while the railroad line was converted into the Harlem Valley Rail Trail.
